Fayose Speaks On Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi Defection To APC
In his words, Fayose stated in a tweet on Wednesday: “Gov Umahi defected to APC long ago before this unjustifiable move, which clearly has nothing to do with the interest of the Igbo nation.
“This is a reflection of the type of leadership our country parades.
“Though his action dampens hope for liberation, however, I’m sure Nigerians will laugh last because sometimes, it will appear to have gotten so bad before it will begin to get better.”
Umahi who defected to APC had anchored his decision on PDP’s marginalization of the South East.
